HOW TO TACKLE THE TOPIC OF INCONTINENCE
Treat incontinence as just another part of your discussion about the resident’s health. There’s no reason to treat it in a special way – because bladder control problems are common and treatment is often available.
The condition is often treatable, but too many residents believe it’s natural sign of aging or simply can’t be cured. By telling them that the majority of incontinence cases can be significantly improved.
Incontinence can affect people of all ages, not just the frail elderly. Prostate conditions, pregnancy and menopause can all bring bladder weakness issues.
Residents with mobility difficulties can experience incontinence problems that can often be helped by making access to the bathroom easier.
